Road to Indy series visit New Jersey While the IZOD IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights teams are taking a well-deserved weekend off, the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear and Cooper Tires presents the USF2000 National Championship powered by Mazda are racing at New Jersey Motorsports Park as part of the Mazda Motorsports Festival presented by VisitFlorida.com.
Conor Daly, the 18-year-old son of former Indy car and Formula One driver Derek Daly, has won the last four Star Mazda events and goes for a series-record fifth win at New Jersey, where he won in 2009. The field also features veteran AMA superbike rider Larry Pegram, who will make the jump to four wheels and race in the Expert class for drivers 30 and older.
Sage Karam looks to continue his successful run through the USF2000 calendar as the series contests a doubleheader at NJMP.
The 15-year-old from Nazareth, Pa., has won three of four races, so far, and aims to maintain his point lead over Patrick McKenna.
"Iowa was great, but New Jersey will be exciting because it's close to my hometown (Nazareth, Pa.), and we should have a lot of friends and relatives there," Karam said.
